Fresh basil perfectly complements strawberries in this sweet beer bread. It's delicious served alongside a pork or chicken dinner or toasted as a breakfast bread. I think it's best with a fruity beer, such as one with citrus or apple flavors, but you may use any favorite beer. You may also substitute lemon-lime soda for beer.
